    Hey Gents,

    I have a 2008 Tacoma DC Prerunner with 23k on the clock. I washed my truck yesterday and noticed a huge amount of black soot on my truck above the exhuast pipe, and i mean alot too. Is there something wrong or so many of you experience the same problem? I looks like someone took ash and smeared it all over that area of the truck.

    THanks if you can help me out

    Matt

    I also have exhaust build up right above my exhaust pipe. I mean it's not a whole bunch but just enough to where it won't come off.:eek:

    Yeah...see, stuff comes out of that pipe....some of it floats up and sticks to the body. A little time and elbow grease will take most/all of it off.
